    Cindy Rhodes — thank you for the interview with Sam Heughan and Caitriona Balfe. Of the 50+ that I’ve watched, your interview ranks in the top 5%. I liked that you addressed them first about their craft and how they started then progressed to how they got their role in Outlander … then about the roles themselves. And, I really appreciate that you did NOT ask that totally stupid question “what do Scottish men wear under their kilt” … it’s irritating and has been done to death.
    Thanks again, Cesse.

      I’m so happy that you enjoyed the interview! I have become an avid fan of the show since the series premiered. I never had the pleasure of reading the book series but have since downloaded everything I could get my hands on. There are so many other questions that come to mind now that the show is in full swing! I’m wondering how closely they will follow the books going forward? Thanks again for visiting our website and taking time to let us know what you think! Maybe we will get another chance to have Sam and Caitriona as guests when they promote season two! Warm regards, Cindy
